Experiencing the diverse wildlife of Borneo
Our trip begins….
Air Malaysia MH3 to Kuala Lumpur then onto Sandakan in northern Sabah, Borneo. After this, we went on to the Sepilok Nature Resort just a few yards from the orangutan Rehab Centre which incorporates the Sun Bear Sanctuary. Both animals are kept in semi-wild situations except for the rescued baby orangutans who are kept inside until they are suitably acclimatised.
Apparently the sun bears are endangered, indigenous to Borneo and have predators (crocs and clouded leopard) hence they have their own semi-wild sanctuary.
